I'm so psyched to hear this. They are one of my fave teams of the last decade.
THAT'S SO AWESOME!!! I wonder though how missing 2 seasons will effect them; will they be able to get back to form? I think they have a real chance to medal in the Olympics. They only question is: how will the judges treat them. The judges were far from generous to D&V in the first place, AND they don't usually like returning veterans. We should see... I am very glad, though, that after '02 Worlds disaster they regained enough optimism to do this. Yay!
(Though another way of looking at this is that they probably couldn't get much out of a pro career since all they "credentials" they have is one World Bronze. )
I'm worried more about how the ISU will treat them, especially after they spoke out against the ISU...
Wow I am soooo glad to hear this. I totally adore this couple!! They are such talented dancers
Lets hope it actually happens and something doesn't change their mind along the way!!
I agree with Toni - I hope they are treated fairly by the ISU and the judges after what happened back in '02.
But - if their goal is to make it to the 2006 Winter Olympics then I wish them the best. Since there aren't many opportunities for pro ice dancers out there, I can't quibble with such a decision - it gives the people who are their fans and admirers more opportunities to see them compete and perform. And I really do like this team - I have liked them for a number of years.
I think they're lovely skaters but big whiny babies--always claiming "We wuz robbed!" It got old.:\ :sheesh:
